Antioch MBA Students Look for Local Projects

Local businesses and organizations have a chance to work with AUSB’s first cohort of socially responsible MBA students starting in 2015.

The MBA students are currently researching topics for year-long individual projects that will begin in January. Local organizations are encouraged to submit projects that align with at least one of the MBA program’s core values of social business, non-profit management, and strategic leadership for student consideration. Projects also must provide students with opportunities to challenge themselves, apply their classroom knowledge, and test new skills learned in the MBA program. Students will select their own projects, and not all submitted projects will be chosen.

Deadline for project submission is Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014; download the project submission formPlease contact MBA Program Coordinator Lindsay Crissman at lcrissman[at]antioch.edu with any questions.

Before beginning their projects, the MBA students attended a workshop on campus on Friday, Dec. 5, during which they split into five groups to conceive and pitch a start-up idea. Students, faculty, and program advisors all participated in the groups.
